Despite our best efforts, facial wrinkles and lines are usually inevitable. While serums, creams, facials, masks, and at-home treatments can certainly help, they are often unable to adequately correct wrinkles and restore smooth skin.
If you have tried these methods and are still bothered by expression lines and deepening creases, Botox can help!
As the #1 noninvasive procedure, Botox is recognized for its ability to combat signs of aging and produce a more refreshed and youthful appearance. The FDA-approved injectable is also indicated in the treatment of certain medical conditions, like chronic migraines and hyperhidrosis.
To learn more about the versatility and benefits of Botox, read on.
What Is Botox?
Botox is a non-invasive injectable procedure designed to relax wrinkles and lines and treat a number of medical conditions. When injected into targeted facial muscles, Botox blocks communication between the nerve and muscle and temporarily inhibits facial movements that cause skin to wrinkle and crease.
What Are the Benefits of Botox?
Botox is an excellent option for women and men who want to smooth forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines, or neck bands. It can also be used to conceal a gummy smile, lift droopy brows, and elevate downturned corners of the month.
But that’s not all.
While Botox is best known for wrinkle-reduction, it has many other therapeutic applications. In fact, the benefits of Botox extend to chronic migraines, teeth grinding, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), overactive bladder, strabismus, and muscle spasms.
What Can Patients Expect from a Botox Treatment?
Botox is performed in the comfort of our office and can take just 15-30 minutes. Most patients find the process very quick and comfortable and experience nothing more than a slight pin-pricking sensation. It helps that Botox is administered with an ultra-thin needle and exact precision to avoid pain and complications.
Often tines, ice is sufficient for pre-procedure numbing. However, a topical anesthetic can be applied beforehand as needed. Following treatment, patients are free to resume all activities and go about their day as they normally would.
